People want to tell their story, interpret their times, write and act with beauty and truth… before their peers, both on and off the stage. Itinerant Theatre (IT) wants to make that possible. IT’s mission is to produce and perform affordable, professional theatrical works for artistically underserved audiences.
IT builds on its Board members’ collective experience of presenting, producing, directing, acting and writing for the theatre and other performing arts, all on a shoestring budget.
IT looks forward to collaborating with other performing arts where possible.
For the 2018-19 season
On Saturday, September 8, 2018 IT proudly co-hosted a 2nd evening of dinner theatre with St. Andrew Presbyterian Church at the church. Titled Louisiana Women: Leading Women, Maggie and Rosa the evening featured a three-course meal with Chef Kevin Hodges and two of Carolyn Woosley’s plays, Maggie and Rosa, from her 13-play composite, Louisiana Women. Joy Pace played both women; Carolyn Woosley directed; Michelle Cook Brunson was Technical Director. The evening sold out. The dinner and the plays were a success.
Please watch postings on this page for future seasons’ dinner theatre events; they are labor intensive, and will not be annual events, but when they happen, you will want to be a part of the fun.
Currently, IT has received and is in the process of reading well over 750 10-minute and short plays submitted by playwrights from across the USA and seven foreign nations. These new play submissions address the theme “Women Leading” for IT’s annual The Play’s the Thing new play series. Announcement of final play selections and scheduling will not occur before December 31, 2018. Staged readings of final selections will occur in spring 2019 in the studio of Itinerant Theatre in downtown Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Itinerant Theatre continues to cultivate and showcase the talents of young and old in front of and behind the curtain.
